DCP Midstream LLCplans to construct a 200 MMcf/d sour natural gas processing plant (Zia II Plant) in Lea County, NM, with associated gathering system expansions to serve producers in the southeast New Mexico and West Texas regions of the Permian Basin. The project includes front-end treating for sour gas, two acid gas injection wells, a 50-mile, 20-inch diameter high-pressure trunkline that would intersect DCP Midstream's existing New Mexico gathering system, and new high-pressure pipelines and compression in West Texas. The project is expected to be in commercial operation during the first half of 2015.
